Which Material to Use for Greater Traction During Winter Months

Becoming trapped in snow and ice when driving or when attempting to extract oneself from a driveway can be a frustrating experience we here at Ontario Honda wish to resolve for our valued customers. Most drivers in create their own winter emergency kit to make sure they are prepared for problems such as a loss of traction due to compacted ice and snow.

Salt and sand are the traditional materials used for melting snow and ice, but a new trend has taken over with the use of non-clumping kitty litter now the material we choose. Salt is still the best possible option for lowering the freezing point of snow and ice to remove them from a road surface but is often a frustrating material to use when looking to gain traction. Cat litter simply absorbs the moisture causing wheel spin and tires to grip the treated road surface.
